On Saturdays I get up before 5 in order to get to the campus at Louisville in time for class.  Then my work week runs from Sunday through Wednesday.  I try to do some cooking on Saturday night for the hubby and the kiddos to have some yummies!

Potato soup is my personal favorite!  

Potato soup
(This is as close to scratch as I get!)
3 pounds potatoes peeled and diced
2 boxes or 4 cans chicken broth
1 onion diced
1 tablespoon celery seed or 1 stalk diced celery
1 carrot shaved (optional)
1 can evaporated milk
1/2 stick butter
salt and pepper
 1 cup diced Velveeta

Boil potatoes and onion and celery seed in broth until tender.  Stir in the remaining ingredients and top with bacon, ham, chives, sour cream, whatever your heart desires!  So yummy!

My youngest loves chicken noodle soup.  Now, I buy generic as frequently as possible but making soup this way is so economical!

Chicken noodle soup
2 boxes chicken broth or 4 cans chicken broth
1 tablespoon celery seed or 1/2 finely diced celery stalk
1/2 carrot chopped, optional
1 small can chicken (white) or one cooked chicken breast, shredded
1/2 package egg noodles

Bring broth, chicken and celery seed to a boil stir in noodles and cook until al dente. 

Usually I double this recipe because my youngest LOVES it!

MMmmmm, soup's on!  Come on over!

This sounds pretty good! I had some food similar in Germany while I was there, documented some of the lower points on my adventure travel blog.

Been following your site for awhile now and love your writing :)
